Drooling Over Tracee Ellis Ross's Digs
When we’re not poring over The Economist, Foreign Affairs and other venerable periodicals, we have been known to glance at some of the more popular glossy mags… oh, who are we kidding: we wait by the mailbox for our celebrity fix.
This month, we’re drooling over Tracee Ellis Ross’s house, which is profiled in the February issue of InStyle. The Girlfriends star has pink couches, a red stove, a real bed for lounging on in the living room, and a lot of portraits of herself. Granted, if we had been painted by Andy Warhol and Greg Lauren (and if we looked even half as good as Ross does), we’d probably have a few glamour-shots on our walls, too.
The furniture looks pretty damn good, too, and the pictures have made us a bit self-conscious about our pedestrian digs. Why don’t we have a palm frond chandelier or a Lucite dining room table? Where can we get that cool Asian-inspired credenza? For that matter, where can we find someone to tell us what a credenza is? We just haven’t seen furniture like that at Target.
Of course, Ross has been collecting cool furniture since she was 16 – who does that? We were lucky we could afford CDs at that age. And she definitely has an edge on decorative accents – our moms didn’t have funky platform shoes or mauve roller skates that we could scatter artfully around our living spaces. That’s what we get for not being born to Motown-legend-turned-disco-diva Diana Ross. What were we thinking?
Have you guys checked out the article yet? What'd you think of Tracee's digs?
